it is with great sadness that I wish to share the following information, kindly transmitted by Prof. Kazumasa Wakamatsu, President of the Japanese Society for Pigment Cell Research (JSPCR):
On behalf of JSPCR members, I am very sad to inform you that Professor Emeritus Yutaka Mishima of Kobe University passed away yesterday. He was 87 years old. He successively held the first president of IFPCS (1990-1993) and also the first president of JSPCR. He made a significant contribution to the society. I would like to say my sincere condolence for his death. It is very sad, but he lived a full and vibrant life indeed.
President of JSPCR
Prof. Yutaka Mishima hosted the International Pigment Cell Conference (IPCC) in Kobe (Japan) in 1990 and was also Honorary Member of the European Society for Pigment Cell Research (ESPCR)
May he rest in peace.
Treasurer and Webmaster of IFPCS, on behalf of the IFPCS Council
very sad to learn about this. I would like to express my most sincere condolences. I had occasion to meet professor Mishima during his visit in Naples and appreciated his high interest in science and great energy. Indeed a great loss to all the pigment cell community and our Federation.
Our most recent review on the current knowledge of the mouse tyrosinase (Tyr) gene is published in @PCMR_Wiley Thanks to @DSeruggia @afernandezl28 amd S.Josa for this work, summarizing over 30 years of work on this unique color gene associated to #albinism
Interested in the genetics of pigmentation? @BillPavan group at @genome_gov @NIH and myself at @CNB_CSIC @CIBERER we have just launched an updated #colorgenes table listing 662 gene entries from human, mouse and zebrafish linked to @GeneticAlliance & #OMIM
Esta es mi #CRISPR postal navideña para 2020, el año que estas maravillosas herramientas de edición genética recibieron el Premio Nobel, a través de Emmanuelle Charpentier y Jennifer Doudna. Rescate de un mutante navideño con la ayuda de una estrategia CRSPR-Cas9.
